This is an outstanding facility, on the waterfront. Alex the manager made our stay! Rooms are huge and well furnished, food is good, amenities complete. Two pools, a few bars, an outdoor spa, a good place for kayaking, plenty of peace. We will definitely be back.

Arrived after dark and couldn't find reception. Not clear as the resort is split in two. Once located check in was easy and helpful. Room nice with a sea view/ water view. Parking close to room. Room ok - large dead moth on floor so housekeeping average. Comfy beds but curtains do not close properly and we couldn't work out...

We like it here because it is far from the hustle and bustle and traffic of the gulf front beaches. A nice little resort tucked away in a fairly rural area. It's on a beautiful little peninsula on Tampa Bay. Great sunsets over the St Pete bridge. Marina with charter fishing with Capt Oliver (Tampa Bay fishing). A restaurant facing...

This place has a wide open view of Tampa Bay, from either inside the restaurant or outside tables by the Tiki Bar. Service is on the slow side if you are in a hurry, but is fine if you are not. Their kitchen is a considerable distance from the tables. Your server will be running back an forth like crazy,...

Only thing I didn't care for is that there was no where to plug my phone in next to the bed. Other than that is was great. I will come back for a family vacation and consider staying there again. I wasn't able to see the outside because it was dark and I left before the sun came up but...

Very nice place to visit for families with young children, or any age. Even though its located off the beaten path the place is totally opposite - very pleasantly surprised. My husband and I both fell in love with it. Staff is very pleasant but not very knowledgeable of what around and internet leaves a lot to be desired.

I had high expectations which were not met due to confusing information on websites and review sites. So firstly this is a resort now branded as 2 areas. Harbourside inn and the inn at little harbour. They are sister resorts next to each other. The photos shown in this trip advisor are for harbourside NOT the inn. As we spent...
